The Twelfth Date is a great friends-with-benefits romance by Stella Starling. I was hooked immediately, as it's just so delightfully fun.
Nicky and Felix have been FWB for a year now. Felix is actually in love with Nicky, but never wants to guilt Felix into settling down. But, when Nicky leaves on a long business trip, their feelings for other start to come to the surface.
I absolutely love Felix's family, as they are entertaining and lovable. They all treat Felix and Nicky like boyfriends, leaving the reader with a lot of great moments.
Overall, this is the story of two men who are perfect for each other, are essentially dating, but are afraid to fess up to their feelings.
Their relationship is fantastic, as they know each other well, care about one another immensely, and will do anything to protect each other.
It has a great pace, and a whole lot of witty banter, especially sexual banter. It's hysterical, yet also full of feelings and emotion. The best line just might be "And nothing says 'I love you' like a mouthful of cock, right?" If you like wit like this, you'll love this book.
One of the best scenes is the barbecue talk. Seriously so many laughs!
The ending is wonderful, romantic, and yet remains true to the witty charm of the whole story.
I love The Twelfth Date. Love it. If you like to laugh, read this book! I know I will be re-reading it often!
